Concerned about a snail epidemic
Hello everyone! This is my first post on this site and I would like to say that it has been helpful thus far; perhaps you could directly assist me.
I am currently setting up a 30g planted tank which is cycling at the moment. I bought some new plants for it yesterday, but today I woke up and noticed a single snail on the glass. I've heard some horror stories about snails completely destroying tanks so I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. If there's one, there's probably a few so should I take the offensive and set lettuce traps down or should I let them be. Also, if I let them be does their presence outweigh the threat of a full scale pandemic?
I've also heard fancy goldfish can swallow snails and I do plan on the tank housing two. Is this true? If you want I could post a picture of my setup.
Thank you kindly!
